Diverse Authors and Illustrators Listing
This form is for the use of publishers and authors to provide contact information for diverse authors and illustrators of children's books who are interested in speaking engagements, panels, workshops, etc. The resulting spreadsheet will be provided to anyone who contacts WNDB for help in finding panel participants and speakers at conferences, festivals, or other events.

WNDB feels that by increasing the visibility of diverse book creators everywhere, we will help fulfill our mission of putting more books featuring diverse characters into the hands of all children. We will ask conference organizers to use this list not only for "diversity panels" but to use it fill all their panels with a wider array of voices and perspectives.

Please note that WNDB will not check for accuracy nor perform ongoing maintenance of the data entered into this form. Conference or festival organizers will contact publishers and authors directly. WNDB will not facilitate any communications or planning.

Authors, if you are published by more than one house, please fill out the form once per publisher. We strongly suggest that you provide contact information through publishers or agencies, not personal phone numbers or emails. This information will be provided freely to anyone who requests access.

Thank you for your commitment to diversity in children's literature!

If you are a conference organizer, please email info @ diversebooks . org (remove spaces) for access to the responses.
